. >> that is wayne lapierre head of the nra. this guy he was referring to is new york mayor mike bloomberg. here with us now is democratic senator from pennsylvania and member of the foreign relations committee, senator bob casey and former governor of pennsylvania, msnbc political analyst and co-chair of fix the debt campaign, governor ed rendell. you guys, pennsylvania. huge state. huge sprawling state. filled with sports people, hunters, gun owners, the vast majority of them responsible. where are you on what wayne lapierre said? >> well, we have a million hunters in the state. as ed knows, it's a big part of our culture and pennsylvania. after newtown i spent a lot of time thinking what happened there and i made a pretty substantial shift in my position. i think we should have not only a vote but pass some of the measures we have been talking about, the assault weapons ban, the magazine clip legislation, if we can get to that, and the background checks. there could be others but those are the three main ones. even if it's only done by way of amendment when we get to the legislation itself. >
to wayne lapierre of the nra. right now the nra is the only organization or voice that has stood up and said precisely what the solution is, and it is, by the way, in place and author of the public schools in this country. it needs to be in wondered%. senate majority leader harry reid says the assault weapons ban had fewer, as he put it -- this is his language, fewer than 40 votes. fifty-one and need for passage and 60 to end closure. fifty-three democrats in the senate and two independents to vote with the democrats. those senators obviously are bucking the democratic party and the. it is why he did the smart and pragmatic thing which is not even move this thing into the package that he will bring before the senate for a vote. by the way, these senators are the ones up for reelection next year in tossup states. there are senators like mark pryor, mary landreau, k hagen, brockovich, tim johnson of south dakota. left virginia is retiring, but the race there is competitive, and the democratic candidate, whoever your she may be, does not need a feinstein votes any around their necks. a
. but they also believe that this idea of extended background check will not help. let's hear what what wayne lapierre had to say about that this morning? >> the universal check is a dishonest premise. there is not a bill the hill that provides a universal check. criminals aren't going to be checked. her not going to do this. shooters in tau son, aurora, newtown, they are not going to be checked. >> reporter: so -- another concern of the nra is that this -- expanded background check is just one step towards a kind of universal gun rej instrument which a lot of -- gun owners are worried about. so they are stress hag in some of their ads as well. >> athena jones in washington. thank you. >>> the u.s. supreme court prepares on weigh in on the same-sex marriage debate, this is what is going on in france. a rally against gay marriage gets violent. atient. i spend long hours with her checking her heart rate, administering her medication, and just making her comfortable. one night britta told me about a tradition in denmark, "when a person dies," she said, "someone must open the window so the soul c
a counterbalance to the nra i find wayne lapierre's comments just sort of bizarre. he is basically saying that the nra can do what they do. they can run ads of the they can try to persuade senators to vote a certain way but nobody else can. and i don't think running ads is imposing your will on people. i think it is running ads and letting people be informed and make a decision and being an advocate. mayor bloomberg is being an advocate for a position and there is nothing wrong with that. heather: rich, what do you think?. >> i think that is basically right. it is a free country. you can spend as much money as you want. i think the reason why you saw a such a strong reaction from wayne la pierre going to opening marks of the segment nra, would love, love, mayor bloom to be public face of gun control in america. the man associated with intruding himself into ordinary's people he is business. who wants to ban and prohibit a bunch of different things so the nra loves this fight with mayor bloomberg. heather: really what he is trying to do here is influence votes by senators prior to the deba
% of the american people. you cannot make an argument -- unless you are head of the nra, wayne lapierre. you cannot make an argument against background checks being universal every single gun purchase, in fact, as recently as 2009, the nra supported universal background checks. even they know it's a good idea. so they gets like 75, 80%. the latest poll that we have seen on gun safety measures. 57% of the american people support the assault weapons ban. again, which is the toughest one? we knew that. dianne feinstein did that when she crafted this legislation. very skillfully crafted this legislation to eliminate some 150 something weapons so the people know what's covered and what's not covered. of course, the gun manufacturers don't like the bill. because the gun manufacturers don't, the nra doesn't. but there is a chance we can get it through the senate. we found out yesterday, not only will we not get it through the senate. we won't even have a vote on it. harry reid yesterday saying, oh no, no, no. i am not even going to allow them this come to the floor becaus
